Netball Australia has developed a 6 step coaching accreditation scheme that will make it easier for coaches to work through the various coaching levels. The basic accreditation course is the Foundation Course. The Netball Australia website provides a full explanation of the coach education scheme.
The Foundation and Development courses are designed for beginner and club coaches.
The Foundation Course is available on-line.
The Development Course is now provided in a blended (on-line and face to face practical format). The course is available to all coaches who have already completed the Foundation Coaching Course.
To enrol in the Foundation or Development Courses log into your MyNetball account and select the course from the "Available Courses" under the Online Learning Tab.
Enquiries should be directed to Anne Stewart on 0414 564 692.
Maintaining your accreditation
To maintain your accreditation you must complete a series of tasks over a four-year period (updating). The updating program aims to raise the overall quality of coaches within netball by ensuring they are provided with ongoing education and development opportunities. Upgrading requirements can be found here. Coaches are able to complete a Log Book which can be downloaded here.
Netball Australia has changed the way accreditation updates work, making it easier for coaches, umpires and bench officials. Just log in to MyNetball using your MyNetball ID.
